Hey mate. Nice story indeed.
1 question. What happened with that young gun Prezioso, is he still in your team? And how he managed to develope.

Transfer Update

A number of clubs have shown interest in midfielder Shinji Kagawa these clubs are;
German sides :- FC Bayern,Leverkusen and Stuttgart
Italian side Inter and French side Lyon have all shown interest in Shinji
They have all lodged £10million bids for the japanese midfielder

Offers by each team;
FC Bayern - Transfer - £1.7miliion initial fee (£8.25 million over 36months)
Inter - Transfer - £10million straight up
Leverkusen - Transfer - £0 initial fee (£10million over 48months)
Lyon - Transfer - £1.8million initial fee (£8.25million over 30 months)
Stuttgart - Transfer - £0 initial fee (£10million over 48months)

I have rejected bids from FC Bayern,Leverkusen,Lyon and Stuttgart as these aren't accepted offers, so I have agreed to sell him to Inter Milan, it is now Shinji's chance for a move away from The Etihad Stadium and to further progress his career in Italy

Yes Prezioso is still in my squad he is currently out onloan to give him first team action, he was top scorer for Swindon last season I think.

Here are Prezioso attributes:

Increase his dribling, free kicks taking and long shots and you will have Italian Juninio Pernambucano. :P And good story mate, I would also accept straight up offer for Shinji Kagawa.
Cheers mac, yeah he will stay out onloan for the rest of the season, and will be used alot more next season along with Santander and Cambi as they both have phenomenal stats :)

Result and Man Of The Match

Blackburn 0-0 Manchester City

Paul Robinson - Blackburn Rovers

This result isn't good enough we should of won this game easily but for some reason they played well against us and stopped us from scoring, will have to have alook at changing my tactic or players to give me a chance of retaining this title!
Hey what formation did you use against Blackburn? It might be an idea to tinker a little with the formation against specific teams!

I would have also suggested playing Kompany in midfield against Blackburn, as they are a physical team and he would have dug in nicely

I found a 4-2-3-1 (see my story to see which one i use) works well and usually makes easy meat of teams like Blackburn
And I was playing 4-1-2-1-2 as it was a new tactic

I was thinking of going to either 4-5-1 with Neymar and Rossi on the wings with Wilshere,Kompany and Lucas in the middle

with Aguero the lone striker upfront

Transfer Update

More interest has been shown in my players during September, the players who have recieved interest are Samir Nasri,Stephen El Shaarawy and Gary Cahill

Gary Cahill recieved interest from Newcastle United who lodged a bid of £10million for England centre back, but offering £2.5million upfront and then £7.25million over a number of months. This was rejected as I want atleast half the money upfront!

Samir Nasri received interest from a number of clubs including Barcelona,Chelsea,Inter and Real Madrid, interest is high in the french playmaker, they have all offered £20million for the midfielder, when he is worth £13.75million. I'm going to delay all the transfers for now.

Only one club have shown interest in young midfielder Stephen El Shaarawy and that's Betis, who have lodged a £5million bid of the £3.5million rated player, this is going to be accepted as he is far down the pcking order so a move away from the club is going to be good for this young Italian player
If the players dont perform, then sell them. Your defence does not match your world class team! I would suggest spending some money and maybe bringing in the likes of Hummels, Thiago Silva etc etc. Start playing Kompany in defence more, and buy a full time holding midfielder. Lucas is god, but make sure youve trained his positioning and tackling to more than 16/17

As for players that dont get a look in, if you really feel they are good then loan them, otherwise SELL!! Dont ruin their careers too. It was on this policy that i sold Pogba and plan to sell Welbeck too.

Yeah Neymar and Rossi on the wings sound good. I still think Rossi isnt that great on the game. have a look at Lucas Moura, he seems a great prospect if trained right.

Transfer Update

Kagawa set to sign for Inter
Man City's Shinji Kagawa is said to be pleased at having agreed terms with Inter.
Kagawa revealed that he was really relishing the prospect of moving to such a popular and displaying his talent on a bigger stage.
As he accepted a lower contract at Inter, Man CIty have agreed to pay him £18,500 per week up until the end of the contract.
The £10mil deal taking Shinji Kagawa to Inter can be now completed.
Finally lol. I just got Kagawa on a free. I hope he performs. Was he good for you?

Transfer Update

Manchester City have announced the signing of brazilan striker Bife from Santos for a fee of £15million.

He will link up with fellow brazilian Neymar and Lucas, so he wont have trouble fitting into the squad

Contract Details will be enclosed when transfer window opens
#42692 nakulp : Finally lol. I just got Kagawa on a free. I hope he performs. Was he good for you?

He played well for me when he did, but he was just down the pecking order and it was hard to keep rotating players as this was making me either lose or draw or the players not performing to the standard, I'm looking to get rid of alot of players to make my team smaller, and replace them with young talented players
Dude can I see the history page of Bife.
